Spotify prides itself on being the best music streaming service there is, with a colossal library of tracks, tempting deals, and plenty of social features enough to get anyone to join the 130 000 000 Premium user crowd.
However, all large systems sometimes experience temporary difficulties, and as Spotify is rapidly becoming more popular, it’s not an exception. The good news is, glitches and bugs are temporary and most of the time there is something you can do to fix the problem straight away. So what can you do?
Make sure your PC is running ok
If you’re running Spotify on a PC, make sure you’ve not installed a firewall that’s blocking it. Finding and altering firewall permissions may be tough, especially with some software that’s specifically designed to make it as hard as possible for users to get involved at all (for their safety) – but we believe in you!. Additionally make sure your drivers are up to date (there are special programs to keep your drivers updated, but watch out for viruses with the custom-made ones).
Do you have enough memory on your phone?
Modern phones may run out of disk space or memory capacity soon, especially with heavy-duty processes like data streaming or running 10 or 20 tabs open at the same time. Make sure to update your phone regularly and delete junk files (these can amount to hundreds of megabytes or even gigabytes, which isn’t helpful if you have only 8 gigs of hard drive space). When your phone is full it will not only run slowly but also refuse to do, well, anything. Sometimes you just need to back up your data to a cloud or external storage and wipe everything.
What about temperature?
Some phones are famous for really hating even the slightest temperature changes. PC hardware will react violently to overheating. Check the temperature to make sure that’s not what’s causing problems.
Try logging in and out
This is one of the simplest ways of fixing problems you don’t know how to deal with. A simple reboot, too, often works like nothing else would. Finally, reinstalling the app may help if nothing else does.
By the way, if you want to transfer playlists and tracks from/to Spotify, MusConv will be helpful for you.
